In an effort to equip youth with the needed safety tools to ensure they travel safely each and every time they ride their bike, Fresno Unified is joining forces with California Highway Patrol, Fresno Police Department, Fresno Fire Department and others to host a Bike Safety Rodeo. Each year, students are hit by automobiles as they ride their bikes to and from school. Local law enforcement will provide bike safety courses, helmet fittings and even do a quick check of a student’s bike to ensure it’s in working order. If a student doesn’t have a bike at home but wants to participate in the Bike Safety Rodeo, gently used bikes will be available. This event is open to the public.

“Every school year, our Fresno Unified safety team responds to an incident where a student has been hit by a car while riding their bike or their skateboard to school. Anything we can do to educate our students around issues of safety, and specifically bike safety, is a Saturday morning well spent,” said Superintendent Bob Nelson.
